Indiana Man Sues over Crash That Killed His Wife

February 22, 2013

The husband of a northeastern Indiana woman who died when a semi-trailer rear-ended two cars in January is suing the truck driver and the truck’s owner.

The federal lawsuit seeks at least $75,000 in damages in the Jan. 8 death of 65-year-old Suzanne K. Stephenson of Monroeville. It names truck driver Scott A. Saunders and truck owner Wisconsin-based Kutzler Express.

The Journal Gazette reports Saunders was driving his truck on U.S. 30 when he rear-ended two vehicles, causing a six-vehicle wreck that killed Stephenson and 43-year-old Sandra Dealy of Convoy, Ohio, and injured six others.

Both women were traveling alone in separate vehicles and died of blunt-force trauma.

A Kutzler Express says the company is saddened by the accident and is cooperating with authorities in their ongoing investigation.

    Exactly how does a semi-trailer rear end another car? Was the trailer supernaturally possessed? Trailers don't rear end anything, the truck rear ends cars typically.
